Through the Bible in Year – July 16

The scheme for July and August can be found here

SoS 1-4; Matt 28: Psalm 97-98

One of the great blindspots in Christian theology and praxis is our lack of much by the way of understanding of the Resurrection. For many and varied reasons, its implications have been put in the draw marked ‘for after I die’. In this way we have actually undone the work that is accomplished on the cross – the reconciliation of Earth and Heaven.

We pray so often, ‘thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven’ – yet fail to recognise how the life death and resurrection of Jesus answers this prayer – as it does all prayer, as He fulfils the Law and the Prophets.

Tragically, although such wisdom and understanding was commonplace in the early church it has been lost.

Perhaps this is The pearl of great price we so desperately need to seek for
